Red Flower - NYC




I found this shop a few years back when I was introduced to their product at a packaging meeting. We were buying custom tube packaging for Tea Design, our tea tasting division, when I expressed concern about the shape working for my customer. The sales rep immediately sent me a sample of red flower packaging. It was gorgeous...and it worked! Located on 13 Prince Street in NYC, red flower totally fits our cute shops blog. Unique interior, stylistic and innovative. On our travels, I have seen red flower products sitting on the shelves at other cute shops, so they are obviously doing a great job with marketing. I love red flower's global approach to product design and the creative botanical combinations like Thai Honeysuckle, Japanese Peony... we decided to go another direction with packaging. I think it is paramount to respect other's designs. Someday, I will show you a pic of our packaging...
Well, my mother is on her way to visit for her 83rd birthday so I may not be able to post for a day or two. We will be off visiting cute shops together. Happy Birthday, Mom!
